    Agreed but there is another sword hanging over the Texan's heads. We have three great WRs right now but two of them haven't shown they can stay on the field for all 16 games. If all of them could then yeah I believe there are very few teams that these WR + Watson couldn't light up if Watson has a few seconds to throw the ball but out of 17 games last year we only had all that combo for 4 of them. TEs I'll believe that they will be used for more than extra blockers when I see it.

    Really like the WR/TE athletic profile. Every WR except Hopkins runs 4.3-4.4 and can stretch the defense vertically/horizontally. Every TE comes in 250+ and has the size to cause matchup problems for DBs/speed to give LBs issues. Lots of opportunity for big plays with these weapons and DW4 at QB!

    Hopkins is so tough/such a team player!

    Rotoworld:

    DeAndre Hopkins said he played with more pain last season than he had dealt with at any point in his career.
    "Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally," Hopkins said. "It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn't." Despite playing through an immense amount of pain, Hopkins still tallied 115/1,572/11 as fantasy's WR4 in '18. Expected to be 100 percent come Week 1, he or Davante Adams are the No. 1 option at receiver across all formats heading into the season.

    Hopkins has far exceeded my expectations.

    So wanted Davante Adams. Took X instead and then ruined him.

    Sounds like we're going to be fined for failure to disclose major injuries on the injury report.
